Audio over HDMI?

Postby jezmck on Sun Nov 02, 2008 7:03 am

Hi everyone, I'm new to Linux Mint, and am really happy to see such an active forum :)
I'm actually fairly new to 'nix (with a GUI anyway), so forgive me if I ask daft questions.

I am in the process of setting up an HTPC:

What I can't see is how to persuade Linux Mint to push the audio through the HDMI cable, and I'm beginning to believe that it's not actually possible.

Any help/advice would be massively appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

It's at least difficult
I have never worked with HDMI so I wonder how do you get the sound into that cable unless you have a video card with sound?
I think this decides what happens

I have had a look around, and am sure I've seen people mention doing it successfully.
It might be that that was with on-board HDMI though.
